No talked to him on Saturday, if it is not gone in two weeks or significantly smaller (making it 3 weeks after the vaccine), I will call him back in two weeks and discuss further treatments, biopsy/removal in week 4.

DH and I think it may be a little smaller. I checked it about three times last night.

L4H How is Jasper today? I hope the lump is smaller. It's tough to "be patient and wait" when you know the possible outcome.
I am going through the same thing (sort of) with TT. He seems to be breathing faster today with a slight wheeze. The vet's office told me to watch him for 24 hrs before I make an appointment and that I am probably watching him too closely. They are probably right. I check him every chance I get. Not getting any work done at all. But they are like our kids. It's hard to NOT worry!
Sending those along for good measure!

I just had a client come in today and we discussed vaccine associated sarcoma or vaccine associated fibrosarcoma disease as her cat has a large vaccine lump post vaccine with an adjuvanted cat vacccine (not from my hospital). As I was talking to her, I remembered I forgot to post this before. The tumor growth is typically months to years after the vaccine. Cats that develop a lump after vaccine will not form a cancer immediately but are thought to be at higher risk than those that do not because we know that they had a large amount of local inflammation at the site of vaccination.

OMG,L4H you certainly have reasons not to leave anything to chance:sad:
If you feel that strongly about it,do whatever you feel you need to do.
I never worried much about Vinnies lump,I did not know it could become cancerous and it did go away,thank dog.
I never ever had that happen with any of my cats,past or present.
So,rather than worrying yourself crazy,do what your love for Jasper tells you to do,ok

OMGosh, I hope Jasper's gonna be alright! We're all sending good vibes!

About what Kathryn said with those compresses. Cold compress to prevent swelling and warm compress to reduce swelling.

No more fiddling with it! Remind yourself you are only allowed to check it once every 4 days cuz growler said so. My Cally had a fibrosacroma growing on his flank - not vaccine related - & definately grew more when it was checked When I had it removed they biopsied it and it was not cancerous but still kept growing until it was fully removed. So leave it alone

Oy, if he's messing with it maybe you should get a collar on him. Are you sure it's from the shot? Could it be a bug bite?

When the vet checked it, he was pretty sure it is a vaccine lump, not a bite.

I think then maybe a collar to keep him from scratching it. At least until you can see it's gone down.

She was making a horrible coughing/retching noise for hours last night. Almost like a furball wanting to come out, but somewhat different.

I have a video of it.

oh God

Yesterday night when I was cuddling with Bunduk I thought I felt a lump on his side but hes just so squrimy and floofy its hard to tell sometimes.

Now I looked for it and he definately has a hard ping pong ball sized mass on his hind leg where he got the vaccine back on June 5th. The vet warned me he might get a lump in the site after and Bunduk squirmed like mad when he did get the needle so I had anticipated bruising but could feel nothing for the few days after (or I overlooked it, I dunno :sad.

L4H how long after the vaccine did Jasper's lump go down? Did it form immediately after??

I thought maybe it was abcess and Onnie and Bundu finally roughhoused it enough to hurt eachother but its not warm to the touch nor do I feel a scab. Ill have to call the vets tomorrow...I feel so horrible for not noticing this earlier..it seems like a very long time for him to still have it after the vaccines June 5?? ahhhh..freaking out.

looking at the timeline of ure post seems it only took 5-6 days to go away/become jelly like.

It has been 15 days since their vaccines. Not good, this is not good at all

It's understandable the way you feel. But a trip to the vet is a good idea just to make sure.
